A Case Study on a Library Classification’s Effect on Library Student Workers’ Perception on Library Work
While there are studies and resources about training and retaining student workers in an academic library, there is little research on whether the library’s collection classification can have an effect on library student workers’ perception on their work and job fulfillment. While employed at the West Coast Baptist College (WCBC) Library, library student workers developed opinions on library work in general as well as their perception on both the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) and the Library of Congress Classification (LCC) while the library converted from the former to the latter. The case study found that seventy-five percent of the participating library student workers preferred LCC over
DDC which minimally affected their enjoyment of working in the WCBC Library.
